SUMMARY

 

The City of Hayward is suffering a sudden drop in revenues as a result of State and County Shelter in Place Orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the City has taken a number of cost-saving measures to limit the impact this crisis has on its employees and residents, such as reducing expenditures, laying off temporary staff, and seeking concessions from its bargaining groups. The City has met and conferred in good faith with HPMU, and members of HPMU have agreed to meet an eighty (80) hour unpaid furlough obligation in fiscal year 2021.
